“Great Stay”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

Enjoyed our stay at the Le Meridien hotel in June, we had a deluxe room which looked onto the evening markets and beautiful sunsets, rooms were spacious and very comfortable. The Staff are very friendly and very professional, the breakfast buffet was great, staff remember what coffees you like after only taking your order once which was truly amazing considering they see so many hotel guest come and go. The little eye opener shots they serve before you go into breakfast was something to look forward to as they have different flavours everyday, and they really do wake you up. The location of the hotel is very central, close to shops and restaurants and markets.

Room Tip: ask for high floor and non smoking room

Check in was very fast and efficient. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious and clean and the hotel is in a great location, opposite is the fish market which sometimes puts an off smell to the hotel but that would be the only downside of the hotel. The pool has a nice view which is hard to see sometimes because of all the trees in the way and the gym has sufficient equipment. The tour guide company near reception were also helpful booking tours for us and made a better deal as we booked quite a few tours with them. The flames restaurant in the hotel was amazing, the food was first class and it was my partners birthday and the staff in the restaurant organised a surprise birthday cake for him which was really thoughtful! Would definately be coming back to this hotel!!!

All in all this is a nice hotel. We just stayed for the one night so our experience of the hotel might be a bit limited. The welcome was great and we got upgraded to a better room than we had booked at first.

However the bed linens weren't clean and the in-room dining we ordered was not as ordered and didn't live up to the standard you would expect from a Le Meridien hotel.

Dear Jakob
thank you for your feed-back pointing out the bed linen was not up to standard and the room service order was missed. This is definitely regrettable and I would like to sincerely apologise for having allowed that to happen.
Thank you

Everything from the check-in (speedy) to the breakfast (outstanding) to the location (so good you won't believe it) ensured that I had a good time in KK with my 2 year old daughter, my mother-in-law and my wife.

Will definitely be staying here again the next time I am back in KK.

Now that my wife Susan and I are home in Melbourne, Australia we would just like to thank all your management and staff on the absolutely wonderful support, concern, and genuine care extended to us after we had received news that our home had caught fire while we were away.
The courtesy extended to us began on the morning we arrived – well before the bad news about the fire – I did not feel well and your reception staff organised the cleaning of our room early so that we could access our room at 10.30 am.
After only one day of our projected 10 day stay we received the news of our disaster at home and once we let your staff know the reason we had to shorten our stay and fly home every member of your staff from the informative and conscientious concierge’s group right down to the waiters, waitresses and housemaids all made us feel we were the only guests in the hotel.
We would like to especially thank John Selva for his sincere and genuine concern he had and showed towards us during our troubled times while we there and awaiting our departure from your luxurious hotel.
As we were in Kota Kinabalu to visit with a close friend and Golf Professional living in Kota Kinabalu, plus to play in the Sutera Harbour Open Golf tournament to which we had to cancel out of, but as a parting gesture to our friend we treated him to a night at your superb hotel, which was the Italian Buffet and Wine Buffet to which he claimed was the best night he had had in 7 years living in KK.
Upon closing I would just like to reiterate the fantastic job all the staff performed and my wife and I who organise golf tours and holidays will definitely return hopefully soon with a group to stay at your hotel. We will also be promoting your hotel to all our friends and trip advisor with glowing reports all round.
Looking forward to returning soon,
Regards,

Neil and Susan
